PMX service in Aus

not being mechanically minded and no shed, I wonder is there anyone than can service and change belts/ re grease my PMX mount?
I have looked at the videos but don't even have a bench top to do it on.
advice appreciated

Hi Graham,

You could try Don Whiteman at Bintel in Sydney (02) 9518 7255
or Roger Davis at Roger's Optics & Restoration also here in Sydney (0425 709 508)
whether it is something they might be able to do for you. Both are telescope

Best regards

ATS also services Bisque and Losmandy mounts.

But the killer will be return freight Tassie-SYD-Tassie

Have another look at the Bisque tutorials on Youtube, a kitchen table will work, then get a set of imperial hex keys, good quality bearing grease and maybe a belt set....and do it yourself.

I'd suggest the original belts will be fine. (I have a spare set from my 4 year old PMEII...but the belts in the mount look like new)

Otherwise...you may find you are looking at a $800 shipping bill ++ the cost of the service ($200 odd including new belts)
